KERN has extensive experience in handling the intricacies of various technical printing projects which include foreign languages. This means that font characters and typeface are comprehensible for everyone and displayed as is typical in the local language.
Preparation for print
As well as traditional print preparation methods such as lithography, assembly, reprography and plate making, we also use the direct computer-to-plate (CTP) method. Unlike traditional computer to film methods, the CTP method saves on assembly time and cost of film. At the same time, these special techniques allow smaller matrix dots to be produced, which compared to traditional methods, produce much higher quality print results. We will of course prepare the text and image data using high-resolution scanning, development and exposure facilities and we are able to produce glossy print pages.
Offset printing for larger orders
Offset printing is the consistently high print-quality and offers vast colour coverage. Another advantage of roller offset printing is that is also enables printing on all materials, including non-absorbent materials. For large orders we use an offset printing method, with which we can produce 5/5-colour printed products. This is also a good method for documents which have complicated post-printing folding.
Sheet-fed offset printing for small and medium orders
Sheet-fed offset printing offers colour intensity, accuracy, brilliance and consistently high quality. Sheet-fed offset printing is also advantageous for small orders, heavier paper and for particular types of folding. The KERN team is happy to answer any questions you may have regarding sheet-fed offset printing.
Digital printing for small orders up to approx. 500 copies
In digital printing, the picture is transferred directly from the computer to the printer. This means that, unlike offset printing, no actual paper copy is necessary. The digital printing method is often used for small print runs. As there is no use of film, fixing baths and aluminium plates, digital printing is not only environmentally friendly, but also enables us to process your order more quickly. It often only takes 48 hours from placing an order to the finished product being ready. In urgent cases, the processing time can be even quicker. Depending on your requirements, we can offer silk screen, inkjet, or laser printing and we will automatically calculate the most cost-effective option for you as part of the process. Digital printing is suitable for single or multi-coloured mini runs, e.g. leaflets, business cards, posters or guide books, for up to around 500 copies.
